Lost in Love

If I appear lost it is because I do not cling to what you hold to. The path I am on is one you cannot see.

The journey with Love asks for all of me, I cannot go in part. My whole self must needs be gathered up, including the pieces that others have claimed and framed, hung on walls and adorned.

I am reclaiming all the pieces, for I would be whole.

When I sit awhile and wait and ask for courage to continue, this Love, my Love, allows me time, and all the time I feel I need. And then at the right moment Love lifts me to my feet and says, “Now, let us move again.”

This Love knows that what’s ahead is superior to anything I have yet known and will not let me stay in this space forever. Instead Love leads me on: calling me to more, drawing me with glimpses of intimacy and depth and connection that will be possible when I am whole and free.

I am reminded that it is okay to leave things behind. Eventually I will leave it all. It is only the pieces of myself I must bring, and these are pieces of me that others also cling too. They need for me to be what they need me to be, all the while unknowing, unseeing that all I CAN be is what I AM.

I AM true to the blueprint of God in me. A design that is within, woven into my Being, it is not imposed from the outside.

For all of me matters and everything has it’s place in the Light of Love. Nothing of the truth of who I am is lost, and yet all of me is lost to the false world.

I am lost in the depths of Love and found again, complete in these same depths.

Chasing Love

As I left the house yesterday morning I saw in the sky a most captivating rainbow:  bright, clear, shining in the mottled grey and blue. Branches of wintery trees cluttered the view beautifully, but roads and houses and power lines also stood in the way.

Suddenly I was compelled to follow it…  Compelled..  Determined.. Gripped with intention.. As one is whenever stopped by a vision of something so beautiful it takes your breath away.

The moment, the vision, it calls to you – it calls to All of you. It breaks through the haziness of living with such clarity.. displaying the Reality of what Life is about so clearly you can only wake up from the daze.

So… I sped off in my little car, darting through the narrow roads in search of a better spot to stand and gaze and drink in the wonder.

I knew what I was looking for: A view unspoiled by stark brick walls or barbed fences, a higher place, a quieter place.

As I drove I kept looking up at the sky, as the foreground was constantly shifting,  I kept getting a new angle and perspective on the brilliance that drew me. And each time the colours shone through I would gasp or sigh.. and make all kinds of delighted little noises to accompany the radiance on my face.

The rainbow was at a constant point in the sky, while I twisted and turned in my path to get to it… Some times I would drive straight towards it – colours shining through the top of my windscreen, sometimes it would peek through my side window, and some times I had  to turn my back to it… simply because this was how the roads ran…

Now and again I took a wrong turn because I was thinking more about the rainbow than the road map! But nothing changed the vision in my mind of what I was looking for and where I was headed until I found that spot… where I could finally stop and be still.

And it was glorious.

This is My Love calling me, drawing me with delight,  bathing me in the essence of Life, reminding me not to forget.. this Promise.

How True it is that we fall in Love

How true it is that we fall in Love with another…

We fall into Love with another

We experience Love with another

But the object is Love… not the other.

Love is its Own ~ and it is Love that draws us…

Love is the Goal, the Delight we seek…

Imprinted on our Being so we will stay on the quest

Another can take us closer to Love, deeper into Love, and together we can drink of Love,

But how confused we become

when we imagine the Other as the goal and source of Love…

It is a burden too much, fraught with disappointment

we may wallow in pain if we mistake the Other for the Lover…

For the Other may leave or be lost, let us down, or lose touch…

But the Lover is always there.

and will make a way to reach us, touch us and draw us again.

Love will find you, and enfold you …

If you will be found.
